Trainings provided by PHENOMIN focus on usage of technologies and transfer of the best methods covering our know-how in rat and mouse model creation, disease investigationzootechny and good practices in animal research. The courses are typically CPD courses and workshop open to the research community. Stay informed and subscribe to our newsletter.

Moreover, we propose on-site training and hands-on training, and some webinars through our partnerships. As part of the training course, upon request, the PHENOMIN infrastructure can offer a tour of the animal facility. Otherwise our scientists can come to your site to train your teams, offering theoretical courses or practical demonstrations, as close as possible to your needs. 

The current trainings cover the following topics

PHENOMIN organizes a biannual special event, a 4 days European School dedicated to the best practices in the use of the mouse model for biomedical and basic research. The school provides a wealth of information on good practices in the use of mouse model (experimental design, ethics, regulations, analysis, data and resources ...) to support attendees in their research. This will be clearly adapted for the Innovative Training Network, and specifically the European Training Networks. See the program of the next 2019 edition:

Flow cytometry webinar

March 20 - October 1, 2020, on line

Flow cytometry is an analytical method to deeper understand the immune system, and precisely by ensuring the detection of complex panel of proteins at the surface of immunological cells for precise phenotyping. For further insight we are pleased to present this ThermoFischer-hosted webinar presented by H.Luche from PHENOMIN-CIPHE

More parameters, more informative phenotypes: Systematic phenotyping approaches - Replay is available on line.

We offer high-throughput solutions for immunity profiling and characterization of your model. This includes the advanced multiparametric flow and mass cytometry approaches onvolving a series of over 200 parameters to phenotype all the cellular components of the immune system. These parameters are combined in one single illustration (immune signature) to provide a more robust way to investigate a phenotype. For any scientific, technological or strategy guidance, please do not hesitate to contact PHENOMIN experts.

September 21 - 25, 2020, Strasbourg, France

PATHBIO IMAGIN(E)G MOUSE MASTER CLASS in 3Rs consists of one of the three intensive courses from PATHBIO consortium. The PATHBIO project brings together an ERASMUS+ Knowledge Alliance consortium from across the globe to cooperate on pooling resources and expertise in order to build the framework for a European post graduate degree in Precision pathobiology for disease models.


  • Learn more about basic and expert knowledge to image mouse models of human diseases
  • Hear about current advances on many technical aspects from structural to functional imaging
  • Highlight crucial issue in your own scientific project.

Have a look to the 2019 Programme !

In 2020, the Imagin(e)g mouse master class  will take place in Strasbourg again, from the 21th to the 25th of September (from Monday morning to Friday afternoon).

The course is free to participants. SAVE THE DATE  !

WEBINAR Series: Transgenic Mouse and Rat Model Creation

November 1 - January 1, 2020, on line

CRISPR-Cas9 is a rapid and cost effective technology to generate mouse and rat mutant models, however, its impact on the genome still requires careful consideration. For further insight we are pleased to present the following Charles River-hosted and Labroots-hosted webinars presented by G. Pavlovic and M-C Birling from PHENOMIN-ICS

PHENOMIN-ICS works with you from concept to model creation using homologus recombination, latest CRISPR/Cas9 and RNAi technology, and either other trangenic technics to deliver the most relevant model for your application. The effective research with rodent models depends on finding the best appropriated model for your project. How can we help you? Request a quote or email us.
